“Prevention” and “Psychology Today” has found a faster way to ...

By Melinda Mawdsley
11/26/2014

The story of “Foxcatcher” isn’t a happy one, but it was a story Michael Coleman thought would be intriguing to tell, particularly with his familiarity with 1984 Olympic champion Mark Schultz and the murder of Shultz’s Olympic champion brother, Dave, at the hands of the affluent wrestling supporter John du Pont. It took nearly 12 years for the story of the Schultz brothers and du Pont to make it to the big screen, but the opportunity to screen ...

Every hunt starts with a plan. First, determine the prey. Is it toys? A new cell phone? That discounted coffee maker your mother or mother-in-law can’t stop talking about? Now map out the best place to find it. Discount stores? Electronics stores? Department stores? Let the hunt commence.

11/13/2014

Admittedly, there isn’t much that’s wild about Redlands artists George Callison, Dan Logé and Charles Morris, except for their shared love of the outdoors and passion to recreate that wild scenery in their artwork. However, when it was time to think of a catchy group name to promote their upcoming art sale, Morris kept coming back to Wild Dogs. “That name stuck with him,” Logé said with a smile. “It is catchy, even though we aren’t very ...
